Steph and Lee aren’t skiers, but the popular ski resort of Seefeld was the perfect place for them to say their wedding vows to one another. It was here in Seefeld that Lee asked Steph to be his wife one year ago. Lee proposed at the top of the Rosshütte, so they decided to return here for their Seefeld Wedding.

A Mountain Wedding

They decided to keep their ceremony a very intimate affair with just family, including Steph’s adorable family westie Harold who performed the role of ring-bearer perfectly.

During the morning the blue skies slowly started to fade as the dark snow clouds rolled in. Tirol has been struggling with a lack of snow during the start of this winter season but while Steph and Lee stood at the top saying their vows, a few snowflakes started to fall from the skies, bringing that perfect snowy touch to their winter wonderland wedding.

Their heartfelt ceremony was held in English, led by the lovely Susan from Hochzeitsredner Tirol, who told us their love story, from the first time their eyes met, to today, promising their lives to each other on the top of a mountain in Austria.
